GROUP KICKS AGAINST PROPOSED REDUCTION OF NDDC BOARD

The Niger Delta Activists Forum (NDFA), has rejected planned reduction in the number of directors of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) board, as recommended in the forensic audit report.
This followed activists demand for the publication of names of those, who allegedly abandoned thirteen thousand projects in the region over the years and an accelerated constitution of the NDDC board.

Lead Forensic Auditor, Kabir Ahmed, who gave an overview of the report, said the team recommended managerial and structural changes, top of which should be the downsizing of the NDDC’s board.
Ahmed said the team recommended that its members should henceforth be appointed board members on part-time basis to reduce cost.

Speaking at a media briefing, in Abuja, President of NDFA, Success Jack and former President, National Association of Nigerian Students, Jude Imagwe, said such structural changes should be extended to other commissions if the Federal Government went ahead to implement the recommendation.
